This boutique wine estate on the foothills of Klein Drakenstein Mountains is a place where authentic wines are produced, and ambitious plans are made.
Winemaker Helgard van Schalkwyk and his team put their heart and soul into achieving the optimal result and creating a wine range extending from uncomplicated everyday-drinking wines to characterful top-of-the-range products, like the soon-to-be-launched Reserve Range.
In the wine cellar they still use many traditional techniques and equipment, which gives their reds a very unique taste that Lynx is known for. Lynx Estate is always the first in the valley to introduce the new vintage of their rosé. It is a well-balanced Blanc De Noir, made from Merlot grapes and is a top choice as a fresh and easy-drinking summer wine. Worth a try are their Viognier and the new Chardonnay; two rich and luscious white wines. Rising above all is their flagship wine “The Spirit of Lynx”, which is a delightful Bordeaux blend worth sinning for.
Within the next 10 months Lynx Estate aims to have completed new guesthouses with self-catering units as well as luxurious B&B double rooms and suites. Next year the tasting room will undergo a major renovation and a new winery is also planned for 2020.
Note their famous Blanc De Noir Launch on 6 and 7 April to experience the 2019 Rosé and all that Lynx Estate stands for. Alternatively, go on any other day and enjoy a private wine tasting on the terrace and adore the stunning view.
